Hello again!

I also had my assignment to get done amongst, visiting my mum at hospital, then at home and going to work etc. I work at the hospital my mum was at so at least I could keep an eye on how she was doing whilst at work etc. We were also trying to sort our wedding venue and date out too. Thankfully my assignment has now been submitted, I just have a presentation to work on now, then I go to Cambridge on Tuesday/Wednesday to complete the course and deliver the presentation. So it will be a sigh of relief once it is all completely out of the way! I just have to hope I pass the course then, which I will not find until September, so fingers crossed. It was one thing after another since I went on the course and was set the work, first the bereavement of my great aunt, then my mum being ill, so it's been a challenge!! It is also my last shift working on the ward tomorrow, those of you that follow my blog might know that I got a specialist nurse role last year but as the hours were not enough I still worked one day a week on the ward to make my pay cheque balance, well thankfully after a long wait I will now be doing my stoma care nurse role full time, which is great as I can concentrate on this now. So I'm hoping that now with the course out the way etc I can get back to some sort of normality, whatever that is! lol. Anyway enough of me waffling on!

I don't have much to show you yet other than a few things I hadn't had chance to post, so here is a card I made for a dear friend's housewarming rec

Supplies: Images and sentiments - Papertrey Ink, Wonderfully Whimsical and Up, up and away sets/cardstock - Papertrey Ink and SU/Buttons and twine - Papertrey Ink/other - Baker's twine - Stampeezee.

Also my friend Gemma and I indulged our obsession with all things PTI a little more!! This helped to cheer me up the other week, my collection is really growing now, yipee! I don't feel too guilty indulging as I have sold an awful lot of my SU stamps etc on ebay recently, so it made some money and space for more PTI yumminess!! With my birthday coming next month I'm sure I may get to indulge a little more, then the purse strings will have to tighten as we will be saving hard for our big day!

On the subject of our wedding, we have chosen a venue and date, just need to sort a few things then I can shout about it from the rooftops!! lol. Can you tell I'm excited?! I'm sure there will be save the date cards, wedding planner journals and inspiration folder projects galore on here soon!! I've got some wedding invitations I made for a friend to share too, so stay tuned, I'm back and itching to create!!
